Volvo announcing U.S. lineup in New York, mystery model expected image

The Swedish based automaker Volvo has recently announced its arrival at the 2013 New York Auto Show, where the company’s U.S. lineup will be announced, along with a mystery model.

Volvo may try to keep is upcoming U.S. lineup a secret for the moment but that doesn’t mean that we don’t have a clue on what it might be and not too long ago a report indicated that the V60 Plug-in Hybrid will be officially presented to the public during the 2013 New York Auto Show. The model is also a finalist for the 2013 World Green Car of the Year, and it’s probably waiting to become a best-seller over-seas.

The Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid is powered by a 215 HP (158 kW) and 440 Nm of torque (324 lb-ft) 2.4 liter five-cylinder diesel engine, along with an electric motor, generating 70 HP (51 kW) and 640 Nm of torque (472 lb-ft) and a 12 kWh lithium-ion battery. The model can sprint form 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and the average fuel consumption stands at a whopping 123.8 mpg (US) or 1.9 L / 100 km. Additional details on Volvo’s U.S. lineup, or on the mystery model, will be announced in New York, on the 27th of March.
